|\\\'Roots from the West\\\' OIGC and Norwegian Choir SKRUK|
Experience OIGC\\\'s gospel repertoire alongside SKRUK\\\'s Scandinavian choral music. As SKRUK\\\'s director Prots says, the concert is \\\'a new musical latte.\\\'
Napa Methodist Church, 625 Randolph St, Napa
The unexpected partnership between Bay Area\\\'s own Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, and SKRUK, hailing from Norway, came to life in 2015 at the Molde International Jazz Festival.
SKRUK, founded in 1973, consists of 50 singers from all parts of Norway. Its members meet four to five times a year and boast a varied repertoire, influenced by Norwegian folk music, spirituals, world music, and jazz. The choir has released more than 20 records and has performed on several continents.
This synergistic collaboration, under the name "Roots," is based on the fact that despite cultural differences in upbringing, culture, and behavior between the American and Norwegian west-coasts, we have common spiritual roots.
As the collaboration culminates in a week-long tour, audiences can expect to experience OIGC\\\'s exquisite harmonies and stirring gospel repertoire alongside SKRUK\\\'s groundbreaking and award-winning Scandinavian choral music.
The concerts will alternate between the choirs singing individually and together. The last is set to be a truly exciting unison. As SKRUK\\\'s founding director of over 40 years, Per Oddvar Hildre (known as Prots) says, the collaboration is "a new musical latte". Whatever your taste, this "latte" is something that all audiences can enjoy.
